Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, October 25th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm for a free training session entitled "Introduction to ProQuest's Indian Claims Insight Database," part of our series of free training sessions at the DOI Library.

ProQuest’s Indian Claims Insight is a one-of-a-kind research tool that provides researchers with the opportunity to understand and analyze Native American migration and resettlement throughout United States history. It also addresses US government Indian removal policies and subsequent actions to address Native American claims. Content includes decisions, transcripts, docket books, journals of the Indian Claims Commission, and related statutes and congressional publications. Researchers can also trace the journeys of Indians as they were pushed from their ancestral lands and forced to relocate, as well as the tribes' determination to gain standing in court to seek redress for inequities in the treaty process. This training session, taught via webinar by a ProQuest trainer, will cover the content in the database, review searching and document types and will also provide attendees with links to additional support materials.

All that are interested are invited.  Please note that the DOI Library is located in Room 1151 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building, just off the C Street entrance lobby. The Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building is located at 1849 C Street, NW in Washington, DC.  Space for the program in the Library is limited so please go to the following link to register:

We do prefer that you attend in person here at the DOI Library if you can.   However, please note that this class is also being offered as a simultaneous online webinar for those that can't attend in person.  When you register, please indicate the name of the program you wish to attend and if you need information about webinar access.

You may contact the Library by phone at (202) 208-5815 or by e-mail at [log in to unmask] for more information about this program or if you have trouble registering using the link above.  For more information about the DOI Library, its resources, and its services, please visit our website at http://www.doi.gov/library.
